    Keeping your home at just the right temperature requires a significant amount of energy, which means you pay quite a lot of money for the comfort that your Orlando air conditioner provides. Fortunately, it’s easy to save energy by following just a few simple tips from our HVAC experts!

     Seal Any Air Leaks

    Sealing air leaks is a quick and easy task that will save you significant money on your heating and cooling bills. Wait for a windy day, then walk around your home with a lit candle. Hold the candle up to areas like windows and doors, which are prone to air leaks, and look for the flame to flicker or even blow out. This will help you locate the leaks in your home, enabling you to seal them up and keep all of your air conditioning inside.

    Use a Programmable Thermostat

    When you aren’t at home, you are wasting energy to heat and cool your home. Purchasing a programmable thermostat allows you to automatically turn on and off your air conditioner in Orlando according to your schedule. It also enables you to create subtle temperature fluctuations throughout the day, like allowing the house to become a little cooler when you are going to bed in wintertime. Programmable thermostats are easy to install yourself, and they can quickly return their investment in energy savings.

    Schedule Regular Maintenance

    Regular maintenance of your HVAC system is an essential part of keeping your energy costs low. An HVAC that isn’t properly maintained can struggle to keep up with the demands of heating and cooling your home, which forces it to use more energy to try to compensate. We recommend that you schedule regular HVAC service in Orlando early each spring and during the fall. This schedule will ensure that your HVAC is well-maintained and able to run at peak performance throughout the year.
